Gnome 3 Will Bring Users Back To Ubuntu: Top 6 Gnome Extensions
Gnome 3 extensions have breathed a new life in those disgruntled Ubuntu users who were looking elsewhere due to the lack of customization of Unity.
The rating jump that LinuxMint enjoyed on Distrowatch was a strong indicator which some Ubuntu fans tried to shot down as 'useless'. Unity may work perfectly fine for a majority of users, especially if you are using a netbook with tiny screen. Don't worry if you were looking elsewhere due to the lack of customization of Unity, now you can customize your Ubuntu and get back to work.
Here are the top 6 extensions to use with Ubuntu and you can start loving it again.
It's the best of both worlds -- stability and power of Debian (with PPA) with customization of Gnome 3 shell.
Now, I just hope those things become part of the standard gnome shell setup and made available in the regular "system config" thing rather than hidden off. Sure, make them default to off if you want that "clean default", but make them easy to find and part of the standard install.
Or would that be too close to "Ok, we admit we were wrong" and thus not politically acceptable?
Isn't this what Mint has been doing all along? Is Ubuntu trying to play catch-up with Mint now?
